Fisheries and coastal governance in the modern age

The Centre for Coastal Management (CCM) and the Department of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences of the University of Cape Coast in collaboration with the University of Rhode Island (USA) with support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is organising the second Conference on Fisheries and Coastal Environment (CFCE).

These conferences are designed to strengthen policy linkages and enable policymakers, fishermen & fishmongers, researchers, journalists, and think tanks connect their voices to the sustainable fisheries and coastal development agenda of Ghana and the West African sub-region at large. The CFCE 2019 will provide an opportunity for stakeholders to discuss topical fisheries management issues such as closed seasons, oil and gas development, transhipment, sanitation, ocean governance, the blue economy, livelihoods, child labour and human trafficking as well as social resilience in coastal areas.

This conference will feature panel discussions, keynote presentations and session papers. There will also be an opportunity for industry and market players to showcase their latest technologies.
